Movies are magical experiences. For viewers, films are little escapes from the mundane. They make us laugh, cry, and possibly see the world in a different light. Even the worst movies bond viewers through a mutually entertaining experience. But for actors, making films is life altering. It’s not just a job for many; a good performance means committing to a character and changing your viewpoint. For some Hollywood actors, performances become realities. This is especially evident when co-stars fall in love while filming. These 17 movies – most of them classics – shattered celebrity marriages when co-stars fell for each other while filming.
17. Northern Lights
It’s hard to imagine this adorable Hollywood couple weren’t married before their performances in “Northern Lights”. Prominent country singer, LeAnn Rimes showed off her acting chops in the Lifetime romance. Opposite Rimes, Eddie Cibrian played an all-too-convincing love interest to the country pop star. During filming, the two hit it off and began an illicit affair. Cibrian’s wife at the time, Brandi Glanville, was one of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars and telegraphed their messy split on the reality show. While LeAnn Rimes was also married at the time, to Dean Sheremet, her divorce was a lot less nasty. After filming ended, Rimes and Cibrian married. The two tied the knot in 2011 and have been happily married since.
